The Weymouth Outdoor Education Centre offers outdoor and adventurous activities for young people and adults throughout the year including;

  • Sailing 
  • Kayaking and canoeing
  • Rock climbing, scrambling and abseiling 
  • Team challenge and forest adventure 
  • Orienteering and navigation

The STEPS building contains a main youth club room, a sports hall and a performing arts area.  There is also an IT suite, film production facilities and a cafe.

Based across these two adjacent sites, the project aims to offer opportunities, activities and support for young people 11/7 (11 hours a day, seven days a week).  This programme consists of four main elements:

1. Targeted youth support (daytime programmes aimed at young people needing additional support)
2. Advice, information and guidance (after school, drop in, clinic-style sessions)
3. Positive activities (after school and at weekends: sports, arts and outdoor education activities)
4. Universal youth support (open access, evening youth club sessions which are developmental and preventative)
